It’s Fun Friday, and I want to share with you an augmented reality app that I saw demonstrated at ISTE this week by Hall Davidson.  The app, IMAG-N-O-TRON: “The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore,” is designed to accompany the picture book of the same title.  You may remember that I shared with you the award-winning short film of that title.

This would make a really unique gift for a young person in your life.  He or she can become completely immersed in this beautiful story that reminds us of the magic of books.  The app is .99, and the book can be found at Amazon for $12.98.  (If you are interested in more gift ideas, you might want to check out my Pinterest board of Toys and Games for Gifted students.  And for more on augmented reality in the classroom, you can click here.)
